Digging deeper, the movie made of Goldman's MAGIC was directed by Richard Attenborough, and stars Anthony Hopkins, Ann-Margaret, Burgess Meredith, and David Ogden Stiers. www.imdb.com... Oh, 1978! You slay me.

Connection blues & breaks -- My phone cord to the DSL modem has been way toooo long, the tech support people insist, and the cause of sputtery gummy troubles.

Kenzo, kudos on the C64 command screen!

The new system is going great, as well! The only thing to point out, is the sometimes jarring color of registered users names against certain playlist backgrounds. Is there any way for hosts to choose the color of their user name links? Some cases it would need to be a different color than their existing scheme but to blend in better.
